I graduated this past spring from Yale University with a Bachelor's degree in English Language and Literature (with a nonfiction writing concentration thesis on architecture and memory). I bring five years of tutoring experience as a Yale Writing Partner, assisting college students with their academic papers, grad school applications, and anything else that needs to be written clearly and effectively. I live in Brooklyn and work as a museum educator at The Frick Collection.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
The first session is all about meeting the student -- learning what motivates him or her, and beginning to determine how he or she works best. We work through a variety of preliminary exercises in the subject, each one catered to a different learning style. The emphasis during this first, crucial meeting is to establish trust and cooperation with the student -- and to make the work enjoyable.
